Early proto-days of talking to parts-voices before Internal Family Systems
The first article on Gestalt, has the only account I know of why Gestalt was so focussed on Perls himself and why no Gestalt textbook was ever produced while Perls was alive.
It also frames what Perls did as excellent "existential therapy" which I believe is a useful distinction.
This is NOT a book on "emotional flooding," this is not the subject. The subject is new-at-time humanistic therapies who employ-stimulate-encourage emotional flooding--and emotional deprivation--as a therapeutic methods for clients.
It's primarily of historical interest to those curious about how holistic-humanistic evolved in their early, erratically-documented days.
Otherwise, pretty much everything else here is superceded by Internal Family Systems (IFS). since 1995 IFS is among the top three most evolved and most spiritually alert holistic-humanistic clinical and self-help methods.
